The Tell Tale Heart


Gingersnap Creations     GC121: Chestnut Challenge-Horror Stories
The Order Of The Opus Gluei     Challenge #116: Something Wicked This Way Comes

This is really my favorite way to start a card or project. A good sketch and at least 2 themes.
October is Stuck on Poe month at Gingersnap Creations and with Horror Stories as the challenge I couldn't pass up trying to depict The Tell Tale Heart. 
We've got the creepy house and even though I've got the heart behind Poe's picture frame I've got a wood plank behind it to remind us that the heart was really under the floor boards. A good classic creepy story to cuddle up with on Halloween night, so that's where Something Wicked This Way Comes at Opus Gluei, because every good horror story has a wicked beating heart in it somewhere.

Supplies: 5" X 6 1/2" Black card blank Halcraft, Papers: Stampin Up-Certainly Celery, Designer Series Paper Well Worn and Frightful Sight, Stamps: Michael's Craft Smart-creepy house, Hampton Art-spooky tree, Stampers Anonymous-City Central, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Sharpie Marker-black, Stampin Up marker-Basic Gray, Stickles-Black Diamond, American Traditional-ribbon, Stampin Up Sizzix-Bigz L Peekaboo Frames, Stampin Up dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥
